Full bio

My interest in medicine started as a child while looking at lung pathology slides with his dad. For me, entrepreneurship is an opportunity to develop new ideas on improving the healthcare system while empowering others to do the same. I received an MD from Yale University, an MBA with High Distinction (Baker Scholar) from Harvard Business School and a BA from Stanford University. I completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and am a Board-Certified Emergency Physician.
